About this Piece

“The Dancer is about creativity… everything we create starts with a little idea — many times we get these ideas in quiet moments of inner reflection. I wanted to validate the time spent daydreaming that seems unproductive, but from which spurts of creativity arise. It’s so important to quietly imagine and get excited about possibilities. I chose dance as a universal expression of creativity because modern dance and ballet is what I watch to be inspired. It is sculpture in motion! And one of the most beautiful ways of using the body to express emotion.” –Susan Lordi

Willow Tree® by Susan Lordi

Susan Lordi's artistic process is rather intuitive; she "sketches" in clay as she conceives, sculpts and carves each piece, always with a focus on gesture that speaks to the universal. By stripping down the essence of emotion to pure form, she opens the interpretation of each piece to the giver and the receiver. This one-of-a-kind approach to product creation makes her pieces truly individual... her hand, and her unique perspective, is evident in each sculpture.
